Is it a doily still when it's that thicker material used to cover larger things that old people have on fancy furniture? I have one of those for my dining table, it was my great aunts
Things like that with sentimental value are acceptable - at home - not work

and i have no fucking clue what its called

Doesn't matter now. It was really nice, but the kid has fucked it all up. Most stains I've gotten out, but the purple paint is there to stay :lol: :lol: I sold the table that went to a couple weeks anyway, I didn't need a 78" table, even though it was a massive, sturdy, very well conditioned table.

might consider having a pillow or something else made out of it for your daughter when she's older, since no one really uses those things

If I'm going to bitch about the microwave in the office, it's gonna be because somebody re-heated fish or burned popcorn.
or left their stuff in the microwave while they're nowhere to be found

hahaha. Juggs I'm sure you can ask around, you must have a relative or friend of your mom's who does that sort of thing. I had a friend in Gainesville who did that but moved away

yeah I never really got why anyone wants to put their most precious delicate thing where its bound to get gravy, wine and everything else on it. Maybe it made sense 100 years ago but I don't get it.

I could throw it away and not give a shit :lol: Sure it's pretty and old, but I only have it because I kept her dining set and the ex wanted to keep it

A PM and also a VP gets an invoice for outsourced production for a project. $1100. He didn't have that accounted for in his budget. Ignoring that it's a project management issue that he didn't budget for something he knows is a requirement in the contract, it's just the manner in which it was presented. External invoice vs. accounting just taking it from his budget. But he wanted me to look into the pricing, which I've done before and the now retired head of IT refused to acknowledge and cost us money:

Outsource: They charge us 20 cents a square foot.

Inhouse production: 12.5 cents a square foot charged to the client, plus a minimum of $120/hr of employee time for production and the contract for that piece of shit plotter is $10,000 a year.

We actually LOSE money by at least 50% by doing this shit inhouse. Why the fuck do they keep that $10k/yr contract and waste our time? :banghead: :facepalm:

only reason we kept the large format printer (we quit the plotter routine 5-7 yrs ago) was the expediency for the single sheet needs and its ability to scan in color. we did go through a period where there was little choice for outsource and it would take 2 days to deliver a print order. now we have a local source again, back to the single sheets. we reduced the cost of the large format drastically.

We have a separate plotter for small job needs, color boards for presentations, scanning, etc. This piece of shit is only for large/multiple sets going to bid. Which we barely use anymore because many clients are content with 11x17.
